Parallel Lines has to be the best Blondie album on every level (even the cover is stunning).

Blondie started a bit punky and quickly became solid pop, keeping their sense of adventure. This album perfectly captures the transition and has strong pop with an edgy sound.

Debbie Harry was at her brazen, beautiful best. Her voice clear and loud and when I stopped to read the lyrics, I saw they were good. Fade away and Radiate.

For all the 1192s, how is one supposed to tell with a sealed copy, hype stickers and CRCs notwithstanding, whether it contains the original mix or the silly Disco job?

Yo, unlike most (all?) other versions, this Dutch original has indeed an inner with credis/ lyrics printed over a plain white background.
